How to Make
Learn how to make sheet pan breakfast pizza for a simple and easy breakfast recipe that is bursting with savory flavor in each bite.
Step 1: The first step is unrolling your crescent roll dough and pressing it down into a baking sheet. Make sure to press in the creases, so you have 1 even dough in the pan. Bake the pizza dough as directed.
Step 2: Cook up your sausage until it is no longer pink, and then work on making your gravy. Sprinkle in flour, salt, and pepper, and then slowly stir in the milk. Continuously stir, so that you can smooth out the gravy. Once it is thick it is ready.
Step 3: Pour the gravy on top and spread it out evenly. This is going to be the base or sauce of the pizza.
Step 4: In a skillet whip up your scrambled eggs.
Step 5: Now you will add on your eggs, shredded cheese and bacon pieces.
Step 6: Bake and once the cheese is all melted, slice and serve up your delicious crescent roll breakfast pizza.
- Pre-cook the crust, as once you assemble with the egg and bacon, you just pop it back in the oven to melt the cheese. It won’t be that long so you want to make sure the crust is fully cooked.
- Use precooked bacon or make sure to cook the bacon before topping the pizza.
- Keeps in the refrigerator for 2-3 days once cooked. Just warm up in the microwave or oven.
The top of the crescent roll will be a golden brown color. You can gently touch or use a toothpick to stick into the dough to ensure the toothpick comes out clean, free of wet dough.
Stirring continuously is key when making gravy. If you do not, it can create lumps as it begins to thicken. So make sure to stir in the flour first, work it in with the meat and grease in the pan, then add in the milk slowly.
